Subcision is a minimally invasive procedure that treats the primary structural cause of cellulite. Cellulite has many causes but the deep pockets and puckers are caused by fibrous bands in the fat layer underlying the affected areas; these bands pull the skin down and create the characteristic dimpling. Our simple in office procedure treats cellulite by releasing these connective bands, typically in a single treatment.
How does it work?
The subcision technique treats the primary structural cause of cellulite—the connective bands woven throughout fat in the thighs and buttocks. These tight bands pull down the skin, creating the puckering you see on the surface of the skin. Similar to a rubber band under tension, once released, the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out.
How soon will I see improvements?
